Parents need  answers to their questions on baby and postpartum care 24 hours a day. BABYTALK is that vital resource for new mothers (and fathers), health educators, and even grandparents, not only telling them what to do but showing them "how to" do it.

Video Rating Guide

“This really is a great video. It’s used in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to educate new parents.”
Robyn L., RN, MSN, PNP,
Oakland Children’s Hospital

“The best teaching about newborns I’ve ever seen in a video.”
Margie Schulman, M.D., Dir. Of Newborn Services
Albert Einstein College of Medicine, NY

BABY TALK is designed to provide answers to all the questions new mothers have as they go about the daily business of caring for their newborn and themselves. It is a live action video and about an hour long.

Unlike other iTunes apps, BABY TALK is NOT a chart or game, or a list of dry facts. BABY TALK is a warm, engaging video that combines hands-on practical information and helpful demonstrations with the emotional support that can be so helpful during those first few months.

There are easy to follow demonstrations of bathing, diapering, breast and bottle feeding, and comforting a crying baby. It shows you the different types of baby personalities and how to best interact with your baby, as well as explaining when to call the doctor, how to care for your body and yourself, and much, much more.

Below is a fuller list of topics covered in the 10 chapters. There are also interviews with new moms and dads who talk about their feelings, the problems they faced, and what worked for them. BABY TALK is especially helpful for new dads, showing them how they can share in baby care.
